Silverdale is an attractive village well located on the shores of Morcambe Bay in the Arnside & Silverdale AONB. The temptation is to head straight for the shoreline and this I did, soon following the mix of beach and rock down to Jenny Brown’s Point (no idea who Jenny Brown is but she certainly picked a great spot to promote herself). A rough path follows the beach on the cliff side often dipping to join the beach itself but I enjoy the scrambling on the rocks, reliving childhood holidays. The second half of the walk is through National Trust land, easy and pleasant at first but confusing as Silverdale is neared, the new sign posts have not helped. Persevere and the village soon appears.

Recommend: Take a picnic to Jenny Brown’s Point

    Hi did the walk yesterday, but when we got to cows mouth from Jenny Browns point we were unable to follow the cliff top path. We then dropped down to the beach from Gibraltar farm caravan park then followed the shore to silverdale. Is there a footpath on the cliff top that you can follow. Cheers john
